Monach aka Monty is a strawberry roan, Dartmoor Hill Pony yearling gelding. Currently standing approx 11hh.
Monty is going to be the perfect all round pony in the future, as well as being the perfect current companion type. He has a very mature head on him and is not phased by passing traffic or anything normal babies would usually find scary!
Monty is green with his handling in the catching straight away aspect, however I do not have any facilities other than a large field and a pair of double entrance gates. Once herded into the double gate section you can catch him straight away in which he will stand like a rock. So if he went to someone with stabling you'd have absoloutely no problems what so ever!
You can however go into the open field and touch his sides, neck etc, he's just not overly keen on having his head grabbed straight away.
He is happy to be groomed, faffed with and ties and stands still for as long as needed.
Monty is the absolute perfect companion pony, I currently have just him and my ridden mare in a large field with no other horses in view. He is not phased at all when I take her away.
We are currently working on general handling including leading and touching all over including throwing ropes over his neck etc and none of it is phasing him at all! Once caught and tied you'd think he was a 10 year old that had done it all of his life.
He lives out 24/7, unrugged with no man made sheltering and is a cheap easy doer. He doesn't require any hard feed and is generally super easy to do!
Price will increase with his experience.
